Sacramental Program

The Glenelg Parish together with Our Lady of Grace School welcomes and supports families in their ongoing spiritual development and faith journey. The program is family centred, parish based, and school supported.

The Sacramental Program for children generally begins in Term 4 of the school year and continues into the following year.

The Sacramental Program prepares children to celebrate the following sacraments:

  • Reconciliation (Term 4)
  • Confirmation (Term 2)
  • First Holy Communion (Term 3)

How will I know if my child is ready to celebrate the Sacraments?

The first and most important factor is that the child has a genuine desire to know more about and to participate more fully in the relationship with God and God's church community. Official pre-requisites are that the child has been baptised in the Catholic Church and must be 7 years of age or older.

If your child was baptised in another denomination or if your child has not been baptised and you wish to enrol with us, please make an appointment to talk with us.
